Bar Charts Lesson

This Year 3 Bar Charts lesson covers the prior learning of reading and interpreting block diagrams, before moving onto the main skill of reading and interpreting information within a bar chart.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. The interactive lesson slides recap the prior learning before moving on to the main skill. Children can then practise further by completing the activities and can extend their learning by completing an engaging extension task.
